Since the Western Front’s inception network art, electronic art, sound, noise and video have been a significant part of the organization’s activities. As a pioneer in connecting artists to technology, the program has been an important site of interdisciplinary art production and dissemination. The Media Arts program continues this engagement by producing and presenting innovative, independent media work, focusing on interdisciplinary, experimental and research-based practices. Recent residents include Oliver Laric and Aleksandra Domanovic, Erin Shirreff and Deirdre Logue.
